CVS is used for version control for larger projects.  For sysadmins, RCS 
works fine for keeping track of changes to config files.  It's extremely
simple to use and makes reverting back to non-hosed versions of a
config file a breeze.  It allows you to go back to any previous
version of a file or just look at what changes have been made and
by whom.

By "cloney" do you mean keeping config files between multiple machines in
sync?  rsync is great for that.
